Two people were killed in a traffic accident which occurred about 1 a.m. on Sunday along the Black Rock main road near its junction with St Stephens Hill Road, St Michael.
Dead are Colin Dexter Clarke alias ‘Terry’ of Chapman Street, St Michael and 36-year-old Jonah King of Braids Road, Lower Carlton, St James.
A Transport Board bus was travelling to Bridgetown with 14 passengers onboard while a white Suzuki Vitara was travelling in the opposite direction with four passengers and the driver.
Both vehicles became involved in a head-on collision resulting in fatal injuries to Clarke, who was the driver of the Suzuki Vitara, King, who was one of his passengers. They both died on the spot.
The other three passengers of the Vitara were transported to the Accident & Emergency Department of the QEH for medical attention.
Six passengers onboard the Transport Board Bus complained of various injuries and were treated by the ambulance personnel at the scene. They all stated that they would seek private medical attention.
Two fire tenders and eight personnel from the fire Department responded to the scene. The “Jaws of Life” had to be used to extract the deceased from the Suzuki Vitara.
Investigations are continuing.
